Port Arthur

Port Arthur

If Prison Break was set in mid-19th century Australia, Tasmania's Port Arthur historic site on the Tasman Peninsula would surely be the location. Separated from Tasmania by a narrow neck of land surrounded by shark-infested waters, Port Arthur was sold as the ‘inescapable prison'. But unlike today's camera surveillance, guards and half-starved hounds guarded the only way out.
